Yes, it can mess up the other teeth as well as her jaw alignment. Her jaw is still growing and with the extra canines in there, it can keep things from moving correctly.
You can help by putting a little pressure on the canines, trying to move them forward, backward, in and out. I just did that with my Mousse who retained two canines and one fell out that night even though it didn't seem like it was budging. (I had a dog trainer show me how first.) You just need to be very careful not to push too hard because you don't want to break the tooth and then need surgery to have the base removed too.
