Can false memories be dreams?

I'm righting an essay about false memories the I have experienced. I was going to write it about a dream that I had that i'm not sure is real or not, but i'm not sure if that is counted as a false memory.

     In a study done by Beaulieu-Prevost and Antonio, they study the impact of dreams on memories and have concluded that dreams are actually more susceptible at creating false memories than are real-life events (2015). Unfortunately there isn’t really a cure for the misinformation effect caused by dreams or just errors of recall in our daily lives.
