I don't use that sort of thing so not sure how effective they are :) -- but longer term, brushing their teeth and giving them good chews are more effective. If a dog has smelly breath it is a definite sign the dog needs to have its teeth brushed regularly as it means it is on its way to getting gum disease. Yur vet may need to scale the dog's teeth (just like with people). Gum disease is actually linked to heart disease so in cavaliers -- already prone to heart disease -- you want to make sure they have healthy teeth and gums. :)
