The only thing that works is a good brushing once per day, especially paying attention to the back and sides.
Even with good dental care they may still need 1 or 2 professional cleanings per lifetime, or maybe not.
Those wipes and rinses are all a waste of money in my opinion, I suppose they have some value as they freshen the breath for a minute.
There was a problem with "greenies" a while back, I think dogs were choking on them or something.

At least 13 dogs have died after being fed the top-selling pet treat in the country, owners and veterinarians have told CNN.
The problem comes because the treats, called Greenies, become lodged in a dog's esophagus or intestine and then some veterinarians say they don't break down.
"I know they are marketed in saying that they do digest. Certainly the ones that we've taken out, esophageal or intestinal, that have been in for days are still very hard," Brendan McKiernan, a board-certified veterinary internal medicine specialist from Denver, Colorado, told CNN
