I think that you also have to make sure that the charges on both sides of the reaction is balanced. So even if the amount of atoms on both sides is balanced, you still need to balance the charge.
while you balance it like any other equation the way you go about it is different. You add water because sometimes there are oxygens that appear on one side of the equation and not the other. To show the actual reaction we add water because that is where those oxygens came from. We then add protons, hydrogen ion, because once the molecule that had oxygens took them from water molecules it left hydrogen ions stranded in the solution and the exact amount is given by balancing the equation.
