Are teeth with moderate bone loss savable long term?

(24m) I have a generalized receding gum line and mild to moderate bone loss. (awaiting perio appt). I have never had gingivitis or gum disease and my hygiene has been excellent to above-average. I have not been able to find an explanation for the recession and bone loss, but it could be due to poor genetics, ortho, very heavy smoking, and very thin gums.

Q is: In teeth with moderately low bone loss, are they viable long-term if the aggravating factors (quit smoking) are eliminated? Or do they need bone graft/are already doomed?

Many thanks
