Hollow's my skull, think that I'm dead?
Conclusion untrue, from burrow loft
Union maintained, steel our thread
It's straight as a brick is light and soft
Recognize me? Better inspect
A fraudulent claim shall not get through
Handshake select one I reject
In Soviet Russia, teeth brush you!

Spoiler for a first stab

 

thinking there's definitely still more to parse but the above might somewhat fit.  this one was just long overdue for a first guess.  we'll crack it yet, plasmid

Thanks for getting this one started, PG. Not a bear trap, lines 5-6 are pointing toward something else.

It might be easier with a rephrasing where the clues are more clearly clues.

 

I have a hollow skull, but am not "dead" because of it

I have come from or been sent from some sort of "burrow"

I either am a part of or am a union kept together with steel

And that steel is not straight

The "you" in the riddle should recognize/inspect me

Any liars or impostors won't get through

I will, with a handshake, pick something to "reject"

Teeth brush you

Not a vending machine. I can see where you're coming from with that answer; clues about maintaining a union with a thread of steel, not letting a fraudulent claim through, and (maybe) teeth brushing you could maybe be made to fit it, but I think the answer I have in mind is enough of a more natural fit that most people could recognize it as the right answer when re-reading the riddle.
