I just starting slowly grabbing muzzle between my hands( click+treat), then I would increase the time I held it before the treat, then I would start opening, doing the same thing. I also would pull her top lip up/bottom lip down, click and treat, increasing time For brushing, I would brush a tiny amount, click/treat, and increase how long I brushed before the treat. I have never trained a dog before her, so this may not work for your dog and could probably be dangerous with some, but it worked for her and she is now perfectly fine with pretty much anything I do with her muzzle and teeth.
