Guy Luzon's men came within inches of taking the lead when Tony Watt was brought down 25 yards from goal and a free kick was awarded. Johnnie Jackson took the set piece and powered a strike towards the net, but his effort cannoned off the crossbar and bounced over.
The Addicks took the lead in the 26th minute as Jackson played Watt through on goal and the striker slotted the ball past Mark Cousins, after his initial strike had been blocked.
In the second half, the Addicks came close to scoring their third goal when El-Hadji Ba carved out space to unleash a powerful strike at goal, but his effort crashed off the crossbar.
Charlton did get their third goal as Watt slipped a through-ball into the path of Zakara Bergdich, who maintained his composure to slot the ball past Cousins for a debut goal.
The home side secured their victory when Ba played Reza Ghoochannejhad behind the Dagenham defence and the forward made no mistake firing the ball past Cousins to seal the win for Luzon's men.
