Fever: See your Pediatrician for flu- like symptoms. Also your child is 4 months past recommended age (12 months) for 1st Dental Examination. Recommend that he see a Pediatric Dental Specialist, a Pedodontist.

Teething: Does not cause fever. If your son has fever it is likely illness caused. Have him seen if you are concerned. All the best.
