In brief: Teething and fever

I would add that if your baby's temperature is above 101*f, teething is less likely to be the cause.
If you have any concerns, see your baby's doctor.

In brief: Yes

It is common for babies, when teething, to get a low grade fever.
If, however, the fever is associated with any other symptoms (cough, sneezing, nasal congestion, rash, unusual fussiness, unconsolable crying, etc.) contact your pediatrician or family doctor to rule out other possible causes for the fever.

In brief: Fever and teething

When babies teeth their noses run.
They cannot blow their noses properly do the mucus backs up via the eustacian tube and causes a middle ear infection. This is what causes the fever and not teething per se.

In brief: That depends

Some babies have no symptoms at all.
Most will have excess saliva, want to chew on things and perhaps be a little cranky. A few may develop low grade fever and/or mild diarrhea. If more severe symptoms develop the baby should be evaluated by their pediatrician as they may have a cold or illness in addition to teething.
