Wedge bolts are OK, Through are better but usually not needed.
This is one possible case where spacers between the deck and concrete can be used. spacers can be a washer a just slightly larger nut then another washer. Or you can get ones in some areas made of plastic.
Drill holes through ledger and put treatment in them.
Caulk the holes in the concrete the bolts go through.
