It might be due muscle fatigue which occured due to your prolonged mouth opening during the treatment or due to trismus cause by your earlier infection. Get it checked. Muscle relaxant along with few mouth opening exercise will help with the problem.
Usually some pain does exist even after a root canal treatment is completed and there may be difficulty in opening mouth, so wait for some more time before contacting your previous dentist.
