Impacted(?) tooth causes? : Dentistry

This one has a lot of backstory to please bear with me. I’m also sorry I’m not good with dental jargon. When I was around 6 my brother hit me in the face with a harmonica and knocked out my upper right canine baby tooth. Thought nothing of it until 6 years later, when my orthodontist told me that my upper right canine adult tooth was lodged sideways in my gums near my nose and then had to be surgically removed (laughing gas is a helluva drug). Is it possible that the “trauma” caused by the harmonica to my mouth was enough to mess up that tooth permanently?

TLDR; can being hit in the face as a young child impact location/eruption of adult teeth?
