Does more MP mean more ability to crop?

If I have a 14mp camera and want to zoom in / crop the photo to focus on a small object, would having more mega pixels preserve more detail? For example I understand photos should be printed at 300dpi. This means a 4x6 picture would need 1600x1200.  Does having more MP preserve more detail or just give a larger field to start with?
