OIL RAN DRY

1999 Kia Clarus

Noises problem
1999 Kia Clarus 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles

My oil ran dry. The engine started rattling so I filled the oil. Thing is, the engine is still rattling so I guess there's permanent damage. I tried an oil additive but the rattling continues.

Is the car safe to drive? I have no oil leaks and no loss of power, just the annoying noise.
