(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.

He used the opportunity of the English translation to make some revisions, including a new introduction and a new chapter on the hydrodynamic theory of motions of ships transporting liquids.
For the case of the receding motion of the liquid contact line on ultra-hydrophobic surfaces, hydrodynamic theory could not be applied to describe the dynamics of wetting.
Brannstrom's hydrodynamic theory is the most accepted explanation for tooth sensitivity and posits that it is caused by fluid movement inside the dentinal tubules.1 Recently, it has been hypothesized that sensitivity after bleaching differs from tooth sensitivity to cold and tactile stimuli, which are usually associated with root dentin exposure.
In Section 2, a linear hydrodynamic theory is employed to simulate the composite sea surface.

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.
The most widely accepted theory for dentinal hypersensitivity is the hydrodynamic theory proposed by Brannstrom et al.
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).
The hydrodynamic theory of Gardner 1965 is based in the action "hammer of water" on the obex, which happens during the arterial pulsation and in consequence to disturbances of drainage of the fourth ventricle, taking the progressive dilation of the obex and of the central channel of the spinal cord (9).
