teeth + nursing = OUCH!

So, my 10 month old DS has had teeth for a while, but all of the sudden, whenever he nurses on the left side, one of his teeth really irritates my boob.  When I take him off, there is a tooth imprint (close to bleeding, but not quite) not far from my nipple.  It hurts like hell!

I've tried taking him off and relatching, but it doesn't usually make a difference.  I've also tried to position the nipple in his mouth differently, but it usually doesn't make it any more comfortable.

Do you ladies have any tips?

TIA!

    Is he biting? My LO was biting and I just pulled him off and said "Uh Oh" and put him down. At first he laughed then he cried but after a few times he realized he couldn't bite me.
