In brief: Unlikeley

With twilight anesthesia a patient is sedated but remains conscious.
The sedatives agents are given to reduce a patient's anxiety and ability to sense or consciously remember pain.

In brief: Yes. Won't remember

With conscious intravenous (IV) sedation, often referred to "Twilight Sedation" you may feel pain.
However, Twilight Sedation medications like versed has amnesic benefit. So, these sedated patients, who may feel pain, do not remember anything prior to and during a dental procedure.

In brief: Yes

Twilight sedation is used to blunt your reaction to pain and a potent pain medicine such as fentanyl is sometimes used when procedures are prolonged or require extensive tissue manipulation.
