(hī'drō-dī-nam'ik thē'ŏr-ē)
Widely accepted theory that explains pain impulse conduction to dental pulp resulting from fluid movement within the dentinal tubules, stimulating the nerve endings, which cause pain and hypersensitivity.

According to the hydrodynamic theory for tooth sensitivity, dentinal hypersensitivity is related to the movement of inter-tubular fluid through the test apparatus.
The motion is approximated by the extended angular jump model, which explores neither hydrodynamic theory nor dynamical methods, he says, and is a hindered molecular motion model that is intermediate between the rotational diffusion model and the model of fixed angular jumps.
In this paper, it will be shown how drift-flux analysis of the froth phase can be reconciled with the recent hydrodynamic theory of pneumatic foams of Stevenson (2007a).
In order to reconcile the hydrodynamic theory of foam with drift-flux analysis, we must calculate the slip velocity implied by Equation (9).
1], which is identical to the flux and liquid fraction predicted by the Stevenson's (2007a) hydrodynamic theory of rising foam.
23 which is consistent with the above estimate using Stevenson's (2007a) hydrodynamic theory for rising foam.
Note that the index n is usual in Equation (5); z is preferred herein because n is assigned differently in Stevenson's (2007a) hydrodynamic theory of rising foam.
The hydrodynamic theory helps explain why dentin hypersensitivity occurs.
