My bite isn't great as the only way to get all my molars to touch each other (so I can eat) requires me to move my jaw out of it's position which results in a popping sensation (TMJ). Whenever I eat and whenever I speak, I experience this popping sensation...
Images below show my natural (?) bite.

My chin looks like this - is it out of alignment?

This is what my bite looks like when I move my jaw out of it's position (?) so all the molars touch. I have to do this to eat and often to speak:

My chin looks like this - or is this one out of alignment?

I'm not sure whether my "natural" bite is the first 3 images I showed you or the fourth one... Can you tell by my chin shape which one is out of alignment and which one is in alignment? Or are they both out of alignment???

I am pretty sure that my TMJ is linked to my bad bite (?) so I am wondering whether braces would be a solution to this - as it'd fix my bite and get rid of TMJ?

Forgot to mention. I believe I have what's known as a mandipular displacement. It perfectly describes what I think's happening.

I was also wondering whether this was a cause enough to get braces on the NHS?
