Do all babies latch badly when teething?

Hi,
My little one is eight and a half months old and teething. She has one tooth so far, but along with not feeling great, she seems not to be latching deeply when nursing. Is this normal? Does anyone know if this means she will continue to latch badly? She does seem to be able to drink well, but I'm worried about how long I will be able to last, because I had cracked & bleeding nipples in her first week. Anything I can do? I do try to take her off and latch her again, but it never works as well as it used to do.
