Nipple pain

All of a sudden I'm having intense pain when LO is nursing on my left breast. It is mostly on the underside of my nipple. He has 2 teeth in and is working on a few more. I'm not sure if one of his nips broke through the skin. I've been putting some Earth Mama Angel Baby nipple butter on but is there anything else I could do?
Thanks ladies!!

My phone thinks it smarter than me. Please pardon any mistakes.

Some babies change their latch or nurse differently while getting teeth. I would just encourage baby to open big and wide by showing him with your mouth, making sure he gets a nice deep latch.

Ditto pp, but also I have had some very intense nipple pain right before a few plugged ducts. By far the worst pain I've had while BFing. I think it's happened 2-3 times. The plugs showed up about 2 days after the pain.
