    Aim: The aim is to evaluate and compare the orogranulocyte count between generalized chronic periodontitis patients with and without Type II diabetes mellitus. Materials and Methods: Saliva samples were collected from 40 individuals who were categorized as healthy patients (n = 20) and patient with Type II diabetes (n = 20). Smears were prepared and stained with eosin stain and observed under the microscope. The neutrophil count was observed, tabulated, and analyzed. Results: It was observed that the mean orogranulocyte count in chronic periodontitis patients without diabetes was significantly higher (mean = 10.20 × 106 cells/ml) than the chronic periodontitis patients with diabetes group (mean = 8.05 × 106 cells/ml) (P = 0.000). Conclusion: It is observed that the orogranulocyte count in periodontitis patients with diabetes is lesser than periodontitis patients without diabetes. Thus, it is concluded that the orogranulocytes can be considered as a diagnostic marker for predicting chronic periodontitis in diabetic patients.
