People have a habit of holding objects such as pens, pencils, or eyeglasses between their teeth when concentrating on a task. But they might not realize how much pressure they're placing on their teeth as they bite down on a non-food object. Biting on a pen or a similar object can cause your teeth to shift or even crack. It can also damage existing dental work that you have in you mouth.
