This web page has an example of a sine wave oscillator.

< http://www.softsynth.com/webaudio/tone.php>

It maintains a phase variable that is incremented for each sample. The 
frequency can be swept or modulated without glitching by updating the 
phaseIncrement variable.

You don't have to worry about aliasing when using a sine wave unless you 
are modulating it at audio rates. Aliasing is a big problem with 
sawtooth and square waves because they contain high frequency partials 
that go above the Nyquist rate.
