Dental pain after root canal treatment because invasive treatment or infection?

Very common. After the root canal treatment, you may have some pain for 24-72 hours. If pain becomes worse or does not improve after 72 hours, call your dentist for post-op evaluation.
Hard to say. Are you infected or did you have an infection? Was the tooth over-instrumented? Root canal therapy is a micro surgery. Sometimes there is post operative pain. Sometimes there is none. Speak to your provider about meds for pain management and feel better soon....
Dental pain. I could be either. If you are not having significant swelling then you probably are just sore from the treatment. If you were sore going into the root canal treatment then you will likely be sore for a while after treatment. Post operative pain after a root canal can range from no pain to 12/10 pain. It varies significantly. If you have gone three days post treatment and have severe pain, call doc.
Both possible. Statistics state that the pre op pain is proportional to post op pain in infected cases. In inflamed pulp cases the post op pain is much less than the pre op pain.
Pain Post Treatment. Root canal therapy removes infection from the inside of the tooth. Abscessed teeth have infection also in the boney socket. This is also inflamed and is likened to a bruise. Post treatment pain is unlikely due to over instrumentation. The most common cause is the inflamed boney socket area that pushes the tooth into a high bite.The bite will hit this tooth 1st pushing the tooth into a bruise.Ouch.
Either. Either. Best approach is to closely communicate with dentist who did procedure to make sure your recovery is within normal limits. If not, other treatment options available.

Curious as to how much will it hurt when the dental anaesthetic wears off, after root canal treatment?

That depends. I have had patients who dont have ay pain after a root canal. And then I have had some with severe pain after a root canal. It depends on how much instrumentation is done beyond the apex of the tooth, how inflamed the nerve is when the treatment was performed (the longer one waits to get a root canal, the more likely it is to hurt after), and your pain tolerance. There are medications to help. Read more...

What do teeth like like after root canal treatment?

The same . . . . Teeth treated endodontically should look the same, with the exception of an access hole that is drilled on the biting surface of back teeth or the back sides of front teeth.

Yes this can. Be noted. One possible reson is that the bite load on the treated tooth was changed or even removed as a part of the root canal procedure. This places a little more load/chewing stress on the adjacent teeth. Also, inflammation from the "sick" tooth can have an influence on the neighbors. Explain this issue w your treating dentist.
