Is the lower canine digging into the upper gum creating a hole or a dent?
If it is, I'd have it checked out by a dental specialist. We were dealing with this with out 6 month old girl, and her lower canine was creating a hole in her upper palate. In 3-4 weeks, it had shifted itself and was creating a "dent" on the outside of her upper gum. Now, 4 more weeks later, the tooth appears to be settled into the correct position. The specialist advised that we did not need any corrective measures, but sometimes help is needed to move the teeth into the correct position.
