Neutrophils are granulocytes, which form an essential component of the cellular innate system involved in killing bacteria and fungi. They play critical role in host defence by phagocytizing and digesting microorganisms and inappropriate activation of neutrophils may result in damage to normal host tissues. The structure, functions of neutrophils, mechanism of controlling periodontal bacteria, and neutrophilic abnormalities with oral manifestations are discussed in this article.
