Does breastfeeding a baby with teeth hurt?

I breastfed all for of my children for at least the first year. I breastfed all of them while they were teething and after they had teeth. Each of my babies did try to bite at least once and it did hurt. I immediately pulled them off the breast and said no. They all learned pretty quick not to bite because that meant they wouldn't get any more milk. During a regular breastfeeding session I did not feel their teeth while they were nursing and it did not hurt. If a baby is properly latched on you should not be able to feel their teeth while nursing and you should not feel any pain.
