Fixing toddler's latch

I am currently tandem nursing my 3 mo and 2 year old. The 2 year old has a HORRIBLE latch and I am constantly having to stop her because I have teeth marks on my nipple. It is quite possibly the worst feeling ever. I am already dealing with nursing aversion, but spending every minute of the feeding reminding her to be soft with her teeth is exhausting and frustrating.

I can't just "zone out" because it is actually painful. Is it possible to fix this latch? I don't know that I can keep going if there's no way to fix this. I don't want to wean because I know she needs this, but she doesn't need mommy freaking out at every nursing session either.
