I've suddenly noticed that one of my teeth has a chunk missing on the lower end (along the gumline). There is a lot of dentin exposed, and naturally it is sensitive to hot and cold, and painful if I touch it the wrong way.
My dental appointment is on Tuesday. It is not painful to eat or anything, but are there things that I should be aware of and try to avoid until Tuesday? Will eating at all cause a rapid decay in the exposed dentin? Should I brush it clean after each meal?

Yes you should brush. Chip or not, that's just good dental hygiene. If you're in a ton of pain there are dentists that will do work on the weekends as an emergency. Think along the lines of a plumber. You'll be charged a handsome fee. If you can wait, then you should. Decay won't set in over night, but I'd keep things clean.
Because I'm a smartass.

Brush your teeth and avoid not sending yourself through the roof.
