I've used 5ASA...Asacol/Salofalk for over 20 years, but never Colazal, and I have no problems with my teeth compared to what I've ever had. I do have sensitivity, but that's from receding gums which I've had filled...relatively no sensitivity now unless I clench a lot.
I would say prednisone would cause most of the problems where enamel is concerned, and the possibility of drinking acidic juices, having not enough calcium/vitamin D or changing one's diet drastically where one isn't getting enough nutrients in general. Of course, having continual diarrhea or vomitting may contribute....

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
