After a root canal, with a temporary crown on is it possible to get guminflammation/infection? If so why would this typically happen? This happened tome a week after root canal. I went to dentist and he said the gum got irritatedduring the procedure and took xray. said he sees nothing wrong with the rootcanal.
How would i know if the root canal failed and im goingto have issues down the road with this? Im waiting to get the permanent crownuntil this settles as he gave me an antibiotic.

Your dentist just told you the reason...the gums are irritated from prepping the tooth and seating the temporary crown. It's normal. Try to go easy brushing and flossing around it until the permanent crown is seated.

The actual root canal itself has nothing to do with irritated gums.
