Mild fever in 17 month old baby since a week,active baby with upper canines coming

Hello, My 17 month-old son has had low grade fever for about a week, ranging from 99 to 100 degrees. The fever only happens at night, and wakes up with no fever at all. He has absolutely no other symptoms and is very active throughout the day, even at night. The only thing is that his two upper canines are coming through. Could this be the reason? I am just worried it could be something more serious. Please help!
