Die Kieferhöhle, Keilbeinhöhle, Stirnhöhle und die Siebbeinzellen sind luftgefüllte Hohlräume, die mit der Nasenhaupthöhle in Verbindung stehen. professor-suckfuell.de
The maxillary sinus, sphenoid sinus, frontal sinus and ethmoid sinuses are air-filled cavities that are connected to the main nasal cavity.

A mechanoreceptor is a sensory receptor that responds to mechanical pressure or distortion. Normally there are four main types in glabrous mammalian skin: lamellar corpuscles, tactile corpuscles, Merkel nerve endings, and bulbous corpuscles. There are also mechanoreceptors in hairy skin

I can't find "Keilhöhle" anywhere but maybe you mean "Keilbeinhöhle" and if that's the case, my suggestion might be ok...
