In brief: Depends who you ask

Large body of literature that states that teething does not cause temperature.
However we've all seen children who are teaching and who have a low grade fever. Anything over 100F should be reported to Pediatrician. Also talk to Pediatrician about teething aids (such as chilled teething rings) and OTC analgesics. Also 1st birthday + 1st Dental Examination. Seek out a Pedodontist (Specialist).
