Busting Bacteria for a Superstar Smile – Capitol Science

February 15 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm


15th Feb – 13:30-17:00

As part of Cardiff Science Festival 2020, we are taking over one of the shop spaces in the Capitol Shopping Centre. The space will feature loads of amazing events throughout the festival that you check out.

Learn the difficulties of bacterial biofilm infection and find out how we are trying to bust biofilms to improve dental health.

Take part in our three activities by being a real-life dentist, filling a tooth with different materials. Discover how to make nanoparticles using milk and fairy liquid, and finally see if you can hack it as antibiotic by getting rid of those pesky bacteria!

Each activity will give you an insight to the research being carried out at Cardiff University’s School of Dentistry, and how we are looking to treat these bothersome bacterial biofilms.

Dysgwch am anhawsterau heintiad bioffilim bacterol a sut rydyn ni’n trio dymchwel bioffilmiau er mwyn hybu iechyd deintyddol. Yn ein gweithgareddau, cewch gyfle i fod yn ddeintydd a llenwi dant gyda sylweddau gwahanol, cewch ddarganfod sut i greu nanogronynnau trwy ddefnyddio llaeth a hylif golchi llestri, ac yn olaf cewch gyfle i weld byd gwrthfiotigion yn ymladd bacteria! Bydd y gweithgareddau yn cynnig mwy o wybodaeth am brosiectau ymchwil o’r Ysgol Deintyddiaeth ym Mhrifysgol Caerdydd a hefyd am ein hymdrechion i drin problemau bioffilm.
