Biting?

When I breastfeed my 8 month old on my right breast, sometimes it hurts while he sucks because of his teeth. I will pull him off and I can see the imprint of his top teeth in the area just about the boob. I don't think he is biting because he has bit me before and this is different. He is actively sucking but still somehow his top teeth are making an imprint in my boob. Any other mommies have this problem? Now, it's not all the time. But it hurts really bad when he does it.

He doesn't do it on the other boob...just the right one. And it doesn't happen when he is side nursing. Maybe I'm holding him wrong when he nurses on that side
