I have had two foster dogs who ate nothing but wet food, they had the most disgusting teeth and breath I have EVER experienced. The Keeshond was 8 years old and his teeth were BLACK. I switched him to dry food and gave him a bone and his teeth were noticeably better in a week. Yes, the bone had a lot to do with it, but I can't imagine the dry food didn't.
Dry food may not 'clean' teeth, but it sure helps to keep them in condition and looking nice.
My parent's dogs only get dry and they don't have bones or chew toys (to prevent arguements) and they have beautiful teeth.
