Ugh, it can be difficult to work on latch with an older baby but one thing you can try is to support the sore breast so that the teeth aren’t digging into it. See if that helps, you may need to experiment a bit with how much to support. Some moms feel better if they actually lift the breast a bit to take the pressure of the teeth off.
