Could having a root canal make my husband's tremors worse?

He was diagnosed with parkinson's a year ago, but the medication has helped with the tremors. He was no longer dropping things and has not fallen in six months. He is suffering a lot of pain from the dental work. Is this causing the termors or will he need a higher dose of his meds?

Thank you, pamstegman. There was a problem with getting into the canal so he has to return for more work. This is the anchor tooth for his plate. (years ago, he had to have a maxilectomy because of a tumor). It's vital that this tooth be saved.

There should not be a lot of pain AFTER a root canal, so call the dentist. A lot of pain would aggravate the tremors.
