In brief: Yes and no

There's a strong body of literature claiming that teething does not cause fever.
That said, teething and fever anecdotally seem to occur simultaneously. If child under 1 year, call

In brief: Teething

Teething, although painful, has been blamed for fever and this just isn't true.
There is another reason for her fever. Give Tylenol (acetaminophen) and have her checked. All the best.
